News and Events Details
For the third consecutive year, UW-Superior theater faculty member Cathy Fank and faculty emeritus Stewart Planter are leading the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Program. Experience the Arts in Scotland is underway now and continues until August 26 for the short program. The students reside in the Dalkeith Palace, a manor built in 1702 on the ruins of a castle and home to the Wisconsin in Scotland Program.
The students have all arrived and the orientation is underway this afternoon (the 13th). Wednesday (14th) they will head into Edinburgh and see the Tattoo in the evening. The Tattoo is a huge spectacle involving hundreds of bagpipers. The classwork starts on Thursday.
Fun learning stops on the journey include, York, London, and Edinburgh.
The photo is the corner of North Bridge and High Street in Edinburgh. Also known as the Royal Mile. The Festival crowds are huge, with what they hope will be record breaking numbers. Cathy Fank and Stewart Platner saw two very good productions for children last week. The puppetry work was excellent. Next June the York Mystery Cycle of plays will be there, in York, England.
The world's oldest and largest arts festival, the Festival Fringe grew out of the first Edinburgh International Festival after World War II. For three weeks, literally hundreds of performances take place in a variety of spaces located throughout the city.
This opportunity is for anyone interested in an intensive experience in theater, and open to all majors and minors.
